The hotel is located at the shopping haven of Myeongdong. What i didn't like is that the hotel carpet is old and they should think of replacing the carpet.

Located right on Myeongdong shopping street. Convenient if that's your thing. Close enough to the palace area and Insadong. Anywhere further will need transport, but there are a number of subway lines nearby. Room was at the back and wasn't affected by street noise - this could be a problem with a room on the street. Twin room was a reasonable size with a decent-sized bathroom. Good amount of shelving around the room. One small window could open which cooled down the room. No power outlets at all beside the beds. LIfts (only three lifts for a 21-storey hotel) were very small and often closed on people. Breakfast on level 21 had great views but the food was your was standard western/Asian hotel stuff. Drip filter coffee was weak. Hot options were usually virtually cold. Bread and pastries were stale. Four cereals on offer were all sugary. Hotel airport shuttle bus only runs twice a day and is basically useless unless you can time your arrival and departure accordingly...or are prepared to wait at the airport for half a day. Overall an ok choice, centrally located, but the lack of bedside power oulets is simply unacceptable.
